How to get to Baie Rouge, Plum Bay, & Baie Longue Beach in St. Martin
Terres Basses Residences in Saint Martin is a security guard gated residential community with two beaches. There are numerous villas and vacation rentals within the community. But the best aspects are the two beaches called Plum Bay and Baie Longue Beach. These beaches are accessible to the public and each have free public parking lot.
When you enter the gate at Terres Basses, you'll need to inform the security guards you are going to the beaches. They will allow you in and you're free to drive to them.
When you pass through the gate, stay to the right and follow the road. It's very difficult to get lost here, but I recommend staying on this road. It will take you to both Baie Longue Beach and Plum Bay Beach. If you make zero turns, you will hit both. Each with their own public parking lot.
Both beaches offer clean and natural sand. Baie Longue is a lot bigger and wider than Plum Bay but both beaches are worth seeing while visiting Terres Basses. Leave the same way you came in.
The additional beach in Terres Basses is outside of the residential area and has easy access for the public including a free parking lot. This beach is called Baie Rouge and is one of my favorites on the island. There's always enough room to spread out, but you'll also most likely never be alone here. The sand is thick and tough to walk through. But it's soft and absolutely amazing.
To get here, stay on the main road and drive north. Right before a very sharp turn right, towards Marigot, there is a left turn onto a dirt road. This will lead you to the Baie Rouge parking lot.
So those are the three major beaches of Terres Basses, St. Martin. They are all worth visiting and seeing the differences of. Whether it's the location from the sunset or the different sand, and even some are easier to swim in than others depending on the year.
